What to look out for after the hair transplant

In aesthetic procedures such as a hair transplant, it is important to follow the professional's behavioural instructions as well as the proper post-surgery care carefully in order to bring about the fastest possible healing. This procedure is essential for the period immediately after the hair transplant up to several weeks afterwards to protect the preservation of the grafts. Accordingly, it is important to take the medication according to the schedule and to follow the detailed instructions for hair care in the following video, as well as in the PDF below.

Our two products: HAIR & SKIN Foam and HAIR & SKIN Shampoo.


Foam + Shampoo - an effective duo

Hair washing may be done gently again from the third day after the operation. As mentioned in the video, foam and shampoo are applied to the head with gentle touches and then rinsed off. This should gradually loosen the crust during the washing process so that it is no longer present at the 10-day check-up. You will be given the products at the clinic after your treatment in sufficient quantity for the time you need them.
